UN-HABITAT Statistical Infographics Designer Jobs in Kenya


UN- Habitat established the Data and Analytics Unit (DAU) under the Knowledge and Innovation branch as a specialized statistical unit in charge of global monitoring of the Habitat Agenda and other agendas with an urban linkage. DAU has more than 20 years' experience in the collection, analysis and production of urban data at the world level and in specific cities.

In line with UN-Habitat's mandate, DAU is working to a) Improve the capacity of countries and cities to access relevant information, setting global standards in the design analysis and collection of urban data, and supports the translation of data/information into policy formulation; b) Guide methodological developments of the urban related indicators and targets used by the international development community to monitor global progress towards implementation of the NUA and the urban SDGs; c) Improve worldwide urban knowledge base by supporting governments, local authorities and civil societies in the development and application of policy-oriented urban indicators, statistics and other urban information.

The Data and Analytics Unit is currently leading SDG 11, the NUA monitoring and overall guidance and support for urban trends monitoring at the global level.

As postulated in the SDG monitoring framework, the structures for data collection, and the resulting data should be disaggregated across several thematic areas – gender, age, persons with disability, and location variables. Additional activities include applying the national sample of cities approach and the degree of urbanization methodology as the recommended approach for defining cities, urban and rural areas.

The monitoring tasks for these two global agendas have now been consolidated through the Global Urban Monitoring Framework (UMF), which covers 77 urban-level indicators. Currently the data unit is involved in rolling out the application of the UMF at the city and country levels.

This task involves development of methodologies which are globally applicable and adaptable to the country level for urban data generation, their piloting, building the capacity of countries/cities to use
these methods and undertake continuous reporting on the urban related indicators, and supporting countries and cities to generate accurate and up to date data which is used for national and global reporting on the progress towards sustainable cities and human settlements.


The consultant will work in the Knowledge and Innovation Branch, under the direct supervision of the Chief of the Data and Analytics Unit. She/he will be responsible for the following tasks:

  • Design technical materials and reports including assessment reports and related factsheets

  • Convert data generated into city and country profiles

  • Design material for capacity development including step by step manuals and presentations

  • Develop and update e-learning and audio-visual material on selected urban indicators for online dissemination, based on the approved methodologies and developed modules.

  • Additional training in Statistical Infographics, or any other closely related field is required

  • A minimum of seven (7) years of work experience working as statistical infographic designer working on a broad range of urban and human settlements issues is required.
